Rights-Preserving Use of Trademarks as Viewed by an In-House Counsel

Join your colleagues in a lively roundtable discussion in Stuttgart on October 8.

Stuttgart, Germany
Wednesday, October 8, 2014
4:30 pm–6:00 pm (followed by a get-together)  

Registered trademarks with protective effect in Germany are subject to required use after a grace period of five years. The requirements of rights-preserving use, which continually evolve – particularly in recent time – through a large number of decisions of the European Court of Justice and the Federal Court of Justice of Germany (BGH), constitute a great challenge in particular to owners of large trademark portfolios and their legal counsels.

The presentation and the following discussion will feature the ECJ’s and the BGH’s new case law regarding the rights-preserving use of trademarks from the point of view of an in-house counsel working in trademark law.
